Brats & Brewery Tour

*This tour is offered on Saturdays only. Tour cost is $159 per person all inclusive. Reservations are required.

In a country full of brewing meccas - Portland, Seattle, San Diego, Boulder - earning the title of Beer City USA four years running is no easy task. Then again, few places can boast not only the sheer number of breweries per capita that the Asheville area has, but also the diversity of operations from incoming craft-beer heavyweights New Belgium and Sierra Nevada to the littlest boutique nano-breweries.

We at Travels in Beer Tours are fortunate enough to be in the middle of it all, and we want to share this exciting beer revolution brewing right here in our backyard.

Our Brats & Brewery Beer Tour begins with a visit to our own Southern Appalachian Brewery here in Hendersonville, which continues to be among the town's more popular gathering places since opening in April 2011 with its homey feel, large outdoor space and range of tasty brews from Copperhead Amber and Black Bear Stout to Belgian Blonde and the award-winning IPA.

From there, we'll take you up the road to Asheville to visit two more distinctive breweries, where you'll again go behind the scenes to witness how their beer is made; hear the stories of how sacrifice, ingenuity and hard work turned the dreams of these passionate artisans into reality; taste the yummy fruits of their labor; and absorb the kind of unique atmosphere at each that has turned Asheville into an international beer destination.
